Fortulla was created in 2005 and its name comes from a small creek called Fortullino which runs throughout the property. The Cabernet grapes are picked by hand, and after destemming the berries are hand selected on a moving belt.  The berries are subjected to pre-fermentation cold maceration, to favor the extraction of varietal aromas, color and the subtler and sweeter tannins.

Pelagico, from the Greek “hills that dive into the sea”, comes from a parcel of clay soil that is rich in fragmented limestone.  Petit Manseng is a French grape variety typical of Jurançon,  characterized by particularly small berries and a thick skin, which produces a small quantity of must. Pelagico is produced in extremely limited quantities.


Pelagico is golden-yellow with a beautiful, intense minerality.  On the nose it presents notes of dried apricot and mature fruit.  To the palate the wine is dry, complex, structured. 

Ideal with white meats and aged cheeses.
